replaced battery/ how to reset codes

I have a 1999 Sl500. I just replaced the battery today. Upon replacing, the dash warning lights for "BAS ESP and ABS" are still lit and will not go out. Is there something that I can do to reset, or do I have to take to dealer. Also, left window now will not go back up + I cannot pop hard top. Please help. I don't want to get ripped off by the dealer over replacing a battery.

RE: replaced battery/ how to reset codes

I had exactly the same thing happen when the tech replaced the battery on my E55.
After replacing the battery, he put the key in the ingnition and turned the stearing wheel all the way to the left and then all the way to the right, did this three times. That did the steering sensor reset, then he rolled all four windows down and held the switch in down position for few seconds and did the same thing with windows rolled up.
From what I remember, he said that all the sensors will have to learn the positions again. So, when you do all these things, the sensors know where all the extreme positions are.
I did have to take it to the dealer to get the code for my stereo though.
Hope this helps.

You've changed the subject.

You need new brake light switch.

Your owner's manual covers what needs to be resynchronized when you replace the battery and tells you how.

I agree, except the guide to turn your steering wheel all the way from one end to the other, I don't remember seeing this on the manual, or have I just missed it.

You may need new battery. if the battery voltage was dropping down under 10 volts at times which is the threshold for the ESP/BAS system according to the Owners Manual.

Here is a comprehensive list of all items that need (or may need) to be synchronized after loss of power (i.e., battery disconnect):

Synchronizing Head Restraints:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or empty), the head restraints are no
longer adjusted automatically. To resynchronize the adjustment feature, turn electronic key in steering lock to position 2, move the seat completely forward and the head restraint fully down, and hold respective buttons for approximately two seconds.

Synchronizing power windows:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or low), the windows cannot be opened or
closed by the Express feature. To resynchronize the express feature, press <close> side of power window switch to resistance point until the window is completely closed and hold for additional 2 seconds. Repeat procedure for each window. The automatic full opening and closing procedure of the windows should now be restored.

Synchronizing sliding/pop-up roof:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or low), or if the sliding/pop-up roof is blocked during closing/opening procedure, the system has to be synchronized. To do so, turn electronic key in steering lock to position 2, move and hold switch in direction (3), until the sliding/pop-up roof is completely raised at rear, and
hold for additional 1 second.

Synchronizing ESP:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or empty), the BAS/ESP malfunction
indicator lamp may be illuminated with the engine
running. Turn steering wheel completely to the left and then to the right. The BAS/ESP malfunction indicator lamp should go out.

Synchronizing remote control:

The remote control may have to be resynchronized, if
the vehicle cannot be locked or unlocked. To synchronize insert electronic key in steering lock.
The remote control should once again be operational.

Since we are dredging up a November 2004 thread, I might as well make a sarcastic comment. randywon made one appearance/post and then disappeared after bashing dealers. Could it possibly be if he had let a dealer replace his !@#$ battery in the 1st place, they would have re-set his codes, and probably at no extra charge?

We can safely assume this. We have another first post without a "thank your" (for lkchris this time). I guess some useful info anyway for others if the couple of original posters did not want to acknowledge that.
